I was thinking today, that I've owned a white dress.......at least not a dressy one. I've had the ocassional white sundress over the years, but never one for evening or a particular event. Maybe part of that had to do with the fact that in past years, the choices haven't been so great, but now there are so many beautiful designs to choose from. If I were looking for a suit, I think I would go for something like the Aquilano Rimondi...........for a dress, the J. Mendel asymmetrical would be at the top of my list along with Notte by Marchesa's halter-style lovely.
One of other things about the white dress, is that you must make sure that you have on the proper foundation garments. You know who you stand in the sunlight, or you're coming through a revolving door or some such, and you can see right through it. That's not always a good look. The second thing, is the dreaded spot (s)..........I would almost feel as though I need to be bubble wrapped, as I'm one of those who looks down and this spot has seemingly appeared out of nowhere. I don't think that I'll let those things stop me though.........I would like to have one for the summer months ahead along with a great pair of silver metallic shoes. I'll be on the lookout!
